  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #48

    Welcome back! In today’s overview of recent updates from the world of research and academia, we’re looking at both the rich legacy and the boundless future of science at ITMO. From legendary scholars and ambitious young scientists to AI-fueled breakthroughs – we’ve got it all.


  • 2D into 3D: Optical Holography Founder Yuri Denisyuk and His Legacy

    Russian science was moved forward not only by great singular minds, but sometimes by dynasties of talented researchers. One such example is the dynasty started by one of the founders of optical holography, Yuri Denisyuk, whose name is still remembered both in Russia and abroad. His son, Igor Denisyuk, chose to follow in his footsteps: he has spent over 20 years working at ITMO, creating high-concentration nanocomposites as well as anti-counterfeiting holograms based on this technology. For this Russian Science Day, we talked with Igor Denisyuk about the path of a scientist, the rise of optical holography in Russia, and ways to develop succession in science.


  • ITMO Scientists Develop Simple Method to Create Durable Anti-Fraud Trademarks

    ITMO University physicists collaborated with experts from Laser Center to develop a new production method for holographic anti-fraud trademarks. With the new technology, it is possible to print unique multicolor 3D holograms on any metal products to protect them from counterfeit. Apart from being highly durable, the trademarks can be made using minimal equipment. The developers claim that this method is cheaper and more secure than the conventional holographic stickers. 


  • ITMO Scientists Create Improved Optical Module for AR Devices

    Researchers from ITMO have used volume holography to develop an optical module that is resistant to chemical damage, physical impact, and extreme temperatures. This module, called a combiner, can be used to create industrial-purpose AR glasses or to project interfaces directly onto the windshields of cars and airplanes. Unlike its counterparts, the device is single-layered, which makes it lighter and prevents glare. The project is supported by the Priority 2030 program.


  • Quantum Tech, Cultural Heritage, and New Materials: Exploring the Research and Educational Center for Photonics and Optoinformatics

    According to Straits Research, the global photonics market will reach the value of $1.1 trillion by 2030, with an average annual growth of 7.3%. Such prospects are attributed to the increased adoption of optical data transmission technologies in healthcare, car manufacturing, intelligent systems, and other industries. As a part of this trend, ITMO has already launched Russia’s first multi-node quantum network and developed the country’s first prototype of a wireless electric car charger. Moreover, the university has recently formed the new Research and Educational Center for Photonics and Optoinformatics. Keep reading to learn more.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #18

    Today, we’ve got a whole lot of research to share with you, dear reader: from an anti-art forgery invention to a promising cancer treatment. And after that, we’ve got insights into the art of lighting design, a celebration of holography, and even a pop-sci collaboration with the city’s top bakery chain.


  • ITMO Researchers Among World’s Top Specialists in Holography

    The editors of the journal Light: Advanced Manufacturing celebrated the 60th anniversary of holography’s invention with a special issue that brought together the world’s top-notch experts, including specialists from ITMO’s Laboratory of Digital and Display Holography, who shared their achievements in THz pulse holography and broadband vortex beams.


  • Fundamental Holography: ITMO Researchers Develop Method for Printing Holograms in Color

    Scientists from ITMO’s ChemBio Cluster developed a method for printing holograms in color in a project supported by the Russian Science Foundation. At the core of the method are volume Bragg gratings, special films with reflecting properties. The proposed technology is extremely simple and doesn’t require any costly equipment. At the same time it has the potential to help produce full color holograms even on a regular printer. This project is a result of collaboration with Krypten, a scientific production organization specializing in optical protection for banknotes, documents, and trademarks. 


  • Brain as a Hologram: Exploring Vision at ITMO’s Museum of Optics

    Interdisciplinarity is all the rage right now, and it’s no longer chic to stay within the narrow boundaries of your own subject. By now, you would have definitely heard about infochemistry or bioinformatics, but what about combining physics and neurophysiology? In this article, we will tell you how these subjects converge at ITMO’s Museum of Optics that creates a unique environment for new insights into vision and mind. 


  • University College Dublin's Prof. John T. Sheridan on Holography, Career, and Irish Culture

    This November, one of the top experts in the world of photonics will conduct a series of open lectures for ITMO students. ITMO.NEWS spoke with Professor John T. Sheridan about the future of holography, academic networking, and why he believes it’s better to think it over ten times before becoming a professor.
